Variation on a theme:
Snuggle time with five-year-old Isabella.
Iz: Daddy, scratch my back.
Me: Do I have to?
Iz: Yes, because you’re the best scratcher. Ever.
Me (inventing…): Yes, well, you know I’m a member of the Back Scratcher Hall of Fame.
Me: Uh… Yeah. I have trophies.
Me: Um, in storage… They want me to give a seminar at the Arm ‘n Leg down off of Hwy 50 on Thursday. I’ll demonstrate my 3P Technique: Pressure. Pedicure. Passion.
Me: Yes, I specialize in arms, legs, and scalps. By the way, “You are my sunshine, my only sunshine.”
Highway 50. At the Arm ‘n Leg. Also scalps. Thursday. Doors open at 9:00. Any takers?
